Hills of Hays Drainage Improvements

The Hills of Hays subdivision has a history of reported property and structural flooding during large rainfall events.  

Instead of addressing drainage issues for each specific location, the City is taking a holistic approach in evaluating neighborhood-wide drainage issues and developing drainage improvements.  The project is being conducted in the following phases:

Phase 1 (completed) included conducting a drainage evaluation with findings and recommendations presented in a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER).  The PER proposed improvements consisted of new curb and gutters, storm sewer systems and a drainage ditch. Proposed improvements also considered comments received during a public meeting.

Phase 2 (on-going) consists of developing drainage improvement designs, construction plans and documents.

  • Phase 1 (Preliminary Engineering Report) started May 2018
  • Neighborhood Public Meeting – July 18, 2018
  • Phase 1 (Preliminary Engineering Report) completed – January 2019
  • Phase 2 - Design started May 2019
  • Phase 2 - Design anticipated to be completed April 2021
  • Construction anticipated to start January 2022
  • Construction Cost (estimate) $3,000,000
